Mathri

Mathri makes me nostalgic! It is a delicacy I have loved eating eversince I was a child.
I remember how excited I would get as a child, on hearing that some distant relative or friend was visting a particular place of religious importance (because to me it meant them bringing back 'prasad' (Mathri) from that place)... :) :)
Recently, I expressed my desire to eat these super sweet indian cookies, and my sis in law was more than happy to make some for me at home!!

Voila, I present to you a delicacy that makes me feel all happy and warm and reminds me of my childhood days... Mathri



Mathri is just an Indian version of a cookie. Only it is not baked rather fried in ghee.

Ingredients:

Refined Flour - 500 gms
Sesame Seeds - a handfull
Milk - 2 tsp
Ghee - to fry
Sugar - 2 cups
Water -2 Cups

Method: In a vessel, get all the refined flour and add sesame seeds to it. Bind it into a very hard dough using very minimal milk.
Now form small round flat balls out of it.
Poke them with a fork. See the image below to get an idea of what it looks like.


Now, heat ghee in a pan and at a low flame, fry these balls untill they turn brown in colour.


Now in another vessel add 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water. Bring it to boil. Stir it occasionally and let the sugar melt. Test the consistency constantly. We want it to be a 3 thread consistency. Dip the fried mathris into this chasni and remove instantly.

 


Wait till they cool down and then devour them. Who's stopping you.
